Somehow, incredibly, all the food is ready.
It seems incredible because, well, I haven’t cooked in a year. There, i’ve said it. I made some cookies for the office Christmas party, and boiled water for plenty of pasta, but i hadn’t cooked as in carrying out a recipe in over a year. So, the idea of having a multi-course, multi-dish party where i was responsible for making half of all of the food items was a little daunting.
And, frankly, it continued to be daunting, right up until twenty minutes ago when (admittedly, slightly blitzed from taste-testing my Continental Strawbursts) i fused all of my chocolate covered pretzels together in the freezer and while removing them discovered that all of my gnocchies had (also) fused together in the refrigerator.
However, the food is made, including food i could make in my sleep (quiche, three-cheese chicken, aforementioned strawbursts) and foods i’ve never even attempted before, out of sheer intimidation (cheesecake, philly rolls, fresh gnocchi).
Anyway, now all i have to do is figure out where to serve it all from, and how much to drink. Oh, and I have to assemble equipment for and mix a Treblemakers concert in …. 40 minutes.
